“Scientists have identified neural pathways that appear to influence an individual’s willingness to work hard to earn money. Scans showed differences between ‘go-getters’ and ‘slackers’ in three specific areas of the brain.” Also worth noting: “For many, the term ‘slacker’ is personified by Jeff Bridges’ character ‘the Dude’ in the 1998 film The Big Lebowski. The new research suggests that Lebowski’s desire to remain unemployed and spend much of his time bowling could partly be down to brain chemistry.”
